Fear God not man

Mat 10. 28

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:

but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

John Bunyan quote

“To go back is nothing but death;

to go forward is fear of death and life everlasting beyond it;

I will yet go forward.”

– John Bunyan, from his PILGRIMS PROGRESS

Christ came into this world to bring an end to sin. Corrupt churches have “agreed” in word, but have taught this will only happen at death, only after one has gone to heaven. They are wrong.   Death is not our Savior. Christ, by His atoning death, conquered sin. Sin stops at Calvary through the power of Christ’s redemption. He is our Savior, not death. Christ is our friend – death is our enemy.

When the last evergreen wisp

Has been removed from the floor,

And the red satin bow

Has been un-nailed from the door.

When the last of the Christmas log

Has smoked the chimney core,

Christ liveth, and ruleth yet.

Believers – Twice Christ warns: Rev 2.9

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not but are the synagogue of satan.” AND   Rev 3.9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” (emphasis – eab)  

O, God, give us wisdom to see which are true and which are false!

*Past Poems Celebrating the Birth of Christ*


He came; He came unto His own,

Angels descended, heavens shone,

Tired men tending their flocks of down sheep

Forgot tiredness, Forwent their night’s sleep

To visit the great Shepherd of all,

Nestled that night in manger and straw.

They told their nephew, son, and dad,

He came ─ Oh, their hearts were so glad.


He came; He came unto His own,

Grew, grew up, became fully-grown,

Introduced by John on Jordan’s bank,

Seen by poor, scribe, by men “of some rank,”

He fasted in the lone wilderness,

Faced three temptations with their distress,

Chose men His “fisher-men” to be,

He came ─ walking on earth and sea.


He came; He came unto His own,

The seeds for which had long been sown.

One prophet cried out in his own night,

Another called for coming of Light.

A virgin (not woman) was foretold,

A village named (was that a bit bold?)

Even His death they did not miss,

He came ─ but it was not all bliss.


He came, He came unto His own,

He was not received, was not known.

They saw Him, Healer for their sick kin,

As Filler for their stomachs so thin.

His friends saw Jesus a sound preacher.

Foes saw Him as dangerous teacher.

(Of course, He was both and much more)

He came ─ shut out of “His own store.”


He came; He came unto His own,

─ “Religion” wanted left alone.

So much they bristled at His sayings

Resented public, private swayings.  

Death “expedient for” His nation

(Unaware He loved all creation)

They got their cold, bloody desire,

He came ─ lived, and He did expire.


But He came, Came out of that grave,

No sword of Jew or Rome was brave

Enough to stop His “Vict’ry ascent,”

The year’s? No – all time’s Greatest Event!

He showed Himself to men in hiding

Ascended, and now is abiding

Beside God, where He so belongs,  

He came ─ Righting believers’ wrongs.
